Agenda, the alliance for women and girls at risk, exists to ensure that women and girls at risk of abuse, poverty, poor mental health, addiction and homelessness get the support and protection they need. We campaign for systems and services to be transformed; to raise awareness across sectors; and to promote public and political understanding of the lives of women and girls facing multiple disadvantage.
In less than three years, Agenda has grown to become a well-respected voice in the sector with over 80 member organisations. We are in the process of moving from a hosted arrangement to becoming an independent charity and we are seeking a new Chair of Trustees who can help build on our progress to date, shape strategic direction and steer the organisation through this change.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a passion for our mission to play a leading role in the next phase of Agenda’s development. The Chair will lead the newly formed Board and small, highly committed executive team to deliver on Agenda’s mission and vision. With a thorough understanding of how gender inequality interacts with other social inequalities and demonstrable gravitas and credibility, the Chair will be experienced in charity governance and have a collaborative and inclusive leadership style.
To apply please read the role description and submit your CV and a cover letter by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for applications is 9am on 31st March.
Interviews are likely to be held in week commencing 9th April.
Agenda is committed to building a culturally diverse team and therefore strongly encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds.
